All coffee creamers are not created equal, as you are probably well aware. Many of them probably should not even be bearing the name “creamer,” as none of their ingredients are even remotely connected to anything dairy.
As a health-conscious coffee-with-cream drinker, you probably already know to shy away from powdered creamers with their long list of unpronounceable ingredients. But isn’t there such a thing as a healthy, non-dairy creamer?
Creamy, non-dairy and organic alternatives are available. Their foundational ingredients usually include either soy, coconut milk, almond milk, and more rarely, ghee.
The Importance of Organic Coffee Creamer
When looking for healthy coffee creamer, one way to eliminate a lot of lesser products is to look for words like all-natural, organic, or grass-fed. This way you don’t have to worry about a lot of fillers, preservatives or artificial flavors.
A popular base for these types of creamers is organic coconut milk and/or coconut oil. Extra-virgin coconut oil and natural coconut milk contain plenty of health benefits, including increased weight loss, reduced risk of heart disease, and a stronger immune system.
Omega PowerCreamer Keto Creamer is an all-natural, keto creamer that takes a slightly different route than most, opting to start with grass-fed ghee as the first ingredient. Ghee is a kind of clarified butter that contains no milk solids and is rich with essential nutrients.
Ghee is lactose-free and even individuals with resistance to dairy can often consume ghee with no problems. It has a delicate, nutty flavor and a healthy, high-fat content that makes it perfect for a keto diet.
PowerCreamer also harnesses the benefits of coconut products. It contains both extra-virgin coconut oil and energy-boosting MCT oil.
Sugar-free, Gluten-free Carb-free…Flavor-free?
Even healthy, organic products can contain a few elements you’d rather avoid. For a truly healthy coffee creamer, it’s best to look for something that has little to no sugar and also won’t be adding a lot of carbs to your morning coffee.
Products like So Delicious Dairy-Free Coconut Milk Creamer do well when it comes to organic ingredients and a smooth, creamy texture. However, this creamer is also sweetened with dried cane syrup (which is sugar.)
You should also be aware that a coconut-based creamer is going to compromise the flavor of your coffee slightly.
Almond milk creamers like Califia Unsweetened Almond Milk Creamer avoid adding sugar and generally have a silky texture and less of an obvious flavor than coconut products. However, these creamers will lack the richness of a dairy or coconut creamer
Omega PowerCreamer Keto Creamer is gluten-free, sugar-free and carb-free. The subtle ghee flavor of the Original is much more likely to compliment your coffee than detract from its savor, and if you enjoy sprucing up your cup with other flavors, you can try one of three different varieties: Vanilla, Natural Cacao, or Cinnamon.
Of all the healthy coffee creamers available today, Omega PowerCreamer Original Blend stands out as our top pick. It not only cuts out the unsafe ingredients but also incorporates nutritious grass-fed ghee, coconut oil, and MCT oil and offers a variety of natural flavors. It is a perfectly delicious way to supplement beneficial nutrients in daily doses.
